Dear Sandra, Norbert Jr.and the rest of the family. I was so saddened to hear of the of Norbert's passing. I offer my deepest sympathies and condolences to you. Norbert was always so kind and generous to my family members and friends who visited the ranch. My nephew Eric was so impressed by all of you. He also extends his sympathies! Thank you Norbert for taking my dad, Eric, and me on your ATV to all the area- El Bordo, Valle Largo, and Valle de las Utes. Thanks for enlightening me on the history of our Vigil family. It is something to be appreciated. God bless and your family! Danny Vigil
